Forum: GratefulDead Subject: firefox and no flash soundboards fixed

Hello GD,
Sorry but we had a bug with our new audio/video player since we started it (for the last 2 weeks of making it the default player and as an opt-in previous to that).

The bug made it so firefox users without flash plugin *or* with flash turned off (and possibly even all firefox users!) visiting a Grateful Dead soundboard show had a player with a nice playlist that just didn't work.

(Under the hood, the new player switches to use ogg audio when it can, especially if there's no flash plugin to play mp3. We had an issue with our ogg audio -- fixed 3 days ago).

VERY sorry about that!

Thank you for fixing it. It had me wondering what the heck was happening to MY computer. I gave up after running out of ideas and just streamed all the wonderful Audience Recordings. Couldn't find any room to complain- you people do a fantastic job on this great site!
Been a daily visitor for over 8 years now and don't plan to stop anytime soon!

So why does your audio player not display song titles anymore. I use Safari.
